Just think, if the job were done adequately the first time there would be no need to come back in five years and re-do it. It is like the road-builders build the road, then the shopping center bilder comes in and does this job only to mess up the road and that requires a new road. Then the new road must be torn up for new utilities, etc.. Just think of the jobs created because of the out-of-sink planning. The same thing applies to rail traffic.."where do we place the tracks"? How about between the interstate lanes? Oh, but just think, we would not be able to hire grass cutters and flower planters if there were trains running there!. And, some poor soul might be stupid enough to get hit by a train so we must displace some nice farm land

In 2008 Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich paid $33.6 million for Lucien Freud's "Benefits Supervisor Sleeping." The price established a record for a living artist. Lucien Freud was grandson of Sigmund Freud, who to this day remains the most famous neurologist and father of psychoanalysis. Although as years go by greater pieces of Freud's theories are chipped away, his influence hasn't waned in the minds of the general public. It all began with his book "Interpretation of Dreams" which introduced among other ideas the Oedipus complex.

It's the day after the State of the Union address when the nation was sold a dream...
